I lived in both Damascus and the countryside. While in school, I had friends from all over the Middle East. I hold a bachelor's degree in translation, specializing in Arabic-English and vice versa, as well as a master's degree in interpreting from Damascus University. Additionally, I possess a TESOL certificate from Arizona State University. I am fluent in Arabic (Levantine), Modern Standard Arabic, and English. Currently, I work as a translator and teacher.
Me as a Teacher
Making students love learning is my passion. I not only teach English and Arabic, but I also empower them with the skills to learn on their own and guide them to the right resources to continue improving their linguistic abilities in both languages.
My lessons & teaching style
My teaching approach enables students to begin speaking the language they desire to learn rapidly. I provide constructive feedback in a friendly manner and motivate them to persist. My lessons are typically replete with examples and enjoyable anecdotes, even when the topic is Arabic grammar in all its complexity.

la mia prima lezione di arabo levantino con Dua è stata veramente interessante. Era la mia primissima lezione di arabo, totale principiante, e lei mi ha aiutato, con tanta gentilezza e pazienza, ad apprendere i primi elementi dell'alfabeto. Le sue spiegazioni sono state chiare e mi ha fatto mettere in pratica quello che avevo imparato facendomi leggere già le prime parole. Consigliatissima! Grazie
My first Levantine Arabic lesson with Dua was really interesting. It was my very first Arabic lesson, total beginner, and she helped me, with such kindness and patience, to learn the first elements of the alphabet. Her explanations were clear and she made me practice what I had learned by having me read the first words already. Highly recommended! Thank you

Dua is a very professional and talented teacher, and the lessons are never boring. Lots of humour, and very good learning materials. She obviously has a great understanding of the arabic language, and teaching arabic to non-native speakers. 10/10 recommended!
